    IU's second movie clip for her 'Spring of a Twenty Year Old' MV was released yesterday on May 7th, through LOEN's official youtube channel, showing an interview with IU in which she voiced her distress regarding her tiny hands.

    While showing a part of the 'You and I' choreography, IU expressed, "(Since my hands are tiny, when I do the choreography), even if I stretch out my hands all the way in front of me, my face looks larger than my hands. When people see it, they go, 'Her face looks really large.'"

    In this movie clip, IU also revealed her extremely girlish preferences. She said, "Be it diaries, pyjamas, socks, or underwear, for stuff like these that only belong to me, I really go for all the girly kinds. I have to wear my pyjamas before I go to bed too, and wear socks with animal designs, even for my pens, I use only cute and pretty ones."

    Meanwhile, IU's new single, 'Spring of a Twenty Year Old' will be released along with the MV on May 11th at 00:00.

    Thanks for posting Squishy! You know, right after this clip came out, some of us were talking in shoutbox and following Korean tweets and trying to see if google translate could give us a hint of the content, and we kept getting back translations about "underwear" and we were all laughing and saying, no, this can't be right...

    So, as usual IU+LOEN are being very clever. IU's public image is shifting to an adult and sophisticated one, but they don't want to give up the natural appeal of cute, girlish charm - so now can they start setting up an inversion. Back when IU's public image was very cute, the dedicated fans could see that underneath the cuteness was a lot of intelligence and sophistication. Now, IU is starting to make her sophisticated side the public face - so interviews like this, where IU talks about liking cute things, creates a complementary impression. IU is mature and sophisticated - but inside she is still a cute girl who loves "girlish" things.

    Well played, IU, well played. :)

    How do I 'like' comments around here?

    Oh this isn't facebook.. kekeke
  6. Awesome comment. IU's image is so carefully crafted it seems like it all really happened by accident. She has the all appeal that the women in K-Pop are known for. But IU has more, WAY more. The vocal talent, the musicianship, budding composing ability and dare I say real talent for arrangements? Hard to believe she is still a teenager sometimes! I respect her as an artist more and more every day. -admin kpoppa IU - Official Fansite on Facebook

    I still think the mention of underwear is a bit awkward and unnecessary(it makes male fans go WHAT?!) lol, but!~ IU is IU...whatever it is you gotta love her :D
    and I appreciate the transparency, revealing things about IU certainly helps build a better connection and understanding between IU and her fans because it brings us closer to IU and makes us see who really is this girl that we have grown to love and respect :)

    thanks for Translating!~~

    Well she's still a girl and a kid at heart^ even though it'll be her birthday soon we all know that she will have that cute image inside her given the fact that her may be tried to be viewed as a woman. Certainly she has matured but no matter what all us fans will love to see both sides of her. Thanks for translating squishy^ awesome article

    Thanks everyone who liked my comment! I'm glad lots of us agree about how well IU is handling her image for this comeback. The anticipation for the release of the album and MV is so strong!

    Do we know an official hour of release? Is the MV itself coming out at 5 pm Korean time also? We need to start planning the "watching MV party" in the shoutbox! :)
